Independence Day & Canada Day Vocabulary Lessons

Have you seen the Canada Day and Independence Day vocabulary lessons in our Word Bank section? Canada Day is a federal holiday celebrated on July 1 that commemorates the signing of the Constitution Act on July 1, 1867. Independence Day, also known as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday that commemorates the July 4, 1776, adoption of the Declaration of Independence. If you live in, teach in, or hail from Canada or the US, your students will be interested in these festive lessons!

Each of these lessons contain eight beautifully illustrated pages that include a colorful picture dictionary, matchup, word choice, word search, word scramble, and spelling bee. Discussion questions at the end allow your students to use the new vocabulary in context!

Our Word Bank lessons all come with a set of printable flashcards at the end. Hang them around your classroom as ready-made decorations, or use them to quiz your students after they’ve tried this lesson.
